Artist: Merry Havens
Smoky Hill Library
Artist's Statement: My love for nature and telling stories of creatures in their environments inspire many of my creations. Several of my favorite pieces involve the wondrous ocean world (sea turtles, dolphins, fish), birds or themes from the cosmos. I currently have a series focusing on Colorado endangered species and other animal-themed projects in the works. Several abstract works have also been exhibited in shows.
Fabric is my “foundation” and I don’t hesitate to alter it with dyes and paints or incorporate beads, shells, art threads and yarns, buttons, and other treasures to give a 3-dimensional and “can’t resist touching” appeal.
As a math and science teacher, I feel compelled to play with topics like “color spectrum,” “string theory,” the "cosmos" and "plasma" in colorful art pieces.
I have participated in several shows and exhibits in and around Boulder and Denver, and other parts of the U.S. and have created several unique commissioned fabric collage projects. Feel free to call to discuss a unique fabric collage art project that you might have for your nest: 303 257-8169, or email me. Please check out my art at: dailyart-merryblog.blogspot.com.

Virtual Light Imagery and Heart of the City
Artist: Michael Palmieri
Artist's Statement: I first picked up a 35mm camera during a mixed media film class in 1969, and I fell in love with the medium. I am passionate about the entire process: seeing what is “there” and beyond, composing the scene, and working toward a final piece. With my Leica M8 and digital photography, I have been able to explore a long-held dream: painting in bold colors with my camera. You see my favorites of this adventure here, printed on aluminum for maximum effect. Along the way, there have been several phases in my photographic journey. Photojournalism developed my sense of producing work that tells a story. I will return to my roots of black and white photojournalistic work in the future. Glamour photography inspired my belief in a special beauty of people and places, and my dedication to portray that beauty in my photographs.Thanks for spending some time with my artwork.
